Cain: ‘I’m very proud of the relationship I have with the Koch brothers’
Far from being the folksy outsider candidate, Republican businessman and newly minted “frontrunner” Herman Cain has held a longstanding relationship with an organization funded by the American left’s favorite Republican billionaires: the Koch brothers. So it shouldn’t be surprising that, when confronted about his ties to the activist billionaires who once employed him, he only partially owned up to it.
“I know the Koch brothers,” he told CNN host John King yesterday. “The Koch brothers helped to start an organization called Americans for Prosperity, and I did some speaking when they were starting that organization. I’m very proud of the relationship I have with the Koch brothers. I have also attended some of their seminars and have found them very informative. So, I don’t have a close relationship, but I know them and I respect them, and they know me and they respect me.”
